North Little Rock woman guilty of wire fraud

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A federal prosecutor says a North Little Rock woman faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to wire fraud.

U.S. Attorney Chris Thyer said Tuesday that 53-year-old Regina Paff pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud related to a scheme to defraud her former employer - AGL Corporation in Jacksonville - of nearly $1 million.

Prosecutors say Paff handled payroll for the company and created a scheme in which she provided herself with additional paychecks, issuing herself unwarranted reimbursement checks and commission checks.

Thyer says a sentencing hearing will be scheduled later.
